Since 2001, Dwyer Group has helped more than 350 U.S. military veterans find business opportunities in the franchising industry. Today, Dwyer Group is proud to have more than 130 veteran franchise owners.
As the Dwyer Group continues to expand its family of service brands, the company is also stepping up efforts to help veterans find success in life and in business.
“We have grown substantially during the course of this year and it is our goal to boost our VetFran efforts across all 11 of our service brands,” said Mike Bidwell, who served in the Marines and now serves as CEO and president of Dwyer Group.
Every year, Dwyer Group makes it a top priority to reach out through VetFran to help veterans successfully integrate into the workforce by giving them different opportunities across all of their franchise brands.
“This program is leading the efforts to educate military veterans about future career opportunities and help assimilate them back into civilian life after they leave the military,” said Mary Kennedy Thompson, military veteran and COO of Dwyer Group.
To date, the VetFran program has helped more than 203,890 veterans start a career in franchising and 5,608 veterans become franchise owners. For more, visit www.dwyergroup.com.
